Lesotho Airways 707-320! Where To?

Mon Sep 24, 2007 12:24 am

Hi all,

Just saw this Lesotho Airways acft and wondered where they operated it to? Not much demand for Maseru from pretty much anywhere...

Hope someone knows  Smile

I think it used to fly JNB-MSU and then onto somewhere like the Seychelles - when South African carriers weren't allowed to fly to the Seychelles. It was something like that anyway. The operation didn't last long.

In 1989???!!! Thats odd because I remember very well spotting at JNB and seeing HM acft coming in on finals. I wasn't even sure that MSU could handle these, so I went to check, was very surprised to hear that they could. I would love to know more, there seems to be nothing online regarding their history or fleet or destinations. Sad really Sad

Brgds,
